The Coroners reports can be found on the MyUni website under the ‘Assignments’ tab Marking Guide – Portfolio (for both Portfolio A & B) Structure and Presentation 20% Structure (20%) • Each section of the portfolio is structured in a logical sequence so that the content flows (headings may be used to develop the structure of the portfolio) • Where appropriate introduces/outlines/situates the activity/discussion • Where appropriate each section of the portfolio ends with a cogent, defendable conclusion that summarises the discussion within the body of the paper • The portfolio is written with clear sentence structure and the spelling and grammar are correct Content 70% • Demonstrates an understanding of the activities/discussions chosen by identifying the main components/issues/focus of the topic area • Provides evidence from contemporary literature to support argument/points of view • Where appropriate for the activity demonstrates critical thought • Has completed all activities/discussion points Referencing 10% • The referencing style used throughout the summary paper is congruent with the School Style and Referencing Guide • The reference list is accurate (i.e. no missing page numbers, volumes, correct title etc.), complete (i.e. no references in the body of the paper are missing from the reference list) and consistent with the School Style and Referencing Guide • The references cited are contemporary (i.e. less than 10 years old unless seminal papers) • Primary references are used predominantly (i.e. the original reference has been cited rather than a secondary source) • The student has acknowledged all sources of information • Direct quotations are only used to make crucial points or to support the discussion/argument Total word count excludes the referencing. As this assignment weightage is 70%, please make sure that appropriate and responsible person is working on this assignment. The university is very strict for the guidelines related to the assignment. So please prepare this assignment carefully aand discuss all the important aspects demanded by tutor in the question correctly( instructions given in the marking guide should also be followed simuntaneously). OTHERWISE I MAY FAIL THE SUBJECT OR HARDLY PASS THE SUBJECT, WHICH IS NOT GOOD FOR MY CAREER. The assignment is largely evaluated from the point of VIEW OF CONTENT. However, referencing and structuring are also important. So, the content organization, level of English used and logical flow of the contents within paragraphs as well as in overall essay is very crucial. Without proper organization and structuring the assignment, it is very hard to understand the content or main argument(s) addressed by the student. I have attached the coroner report and one solution of the similar (HOWEVER, NOT EACTLY SAME SCENARIO HAS BEEN ADDRESSED) question. HERE IT IS REALLY VERY IMPORTANT TO USE THIS SOLUTION AS ONLY A REFERNECE FOR STRUCTURING THE ASSIGNMENT. The SCENARIO PRESENTED IN THIS ASSIGNMENT IS SIGNIFICANTLY DIFFERENT FROM THE ONE ADDRESSED IN THE EXAMPLIFIER. Also some IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS REGARDING INTRODUCTION, CONCLUSION AND PARAGRAPG WRITING HAS BEEN ATTACHED. Please have a look at them because UNIVERSITY WANTS THAT LEVEL OF ACADEMIC WRITNG IN EACH ASSIGNMENT. Only the literature upto 10 years old should be used. Peer reviewed articles should be used. The articles from the google scholar should not be used. The preferred databases are CINHAL , pubmed, scopus. How to structure the assignment Same headings can be used as in exemplifier, ESPECIALLY ETHICAL DECISION-MAKIN COMPONENT SHOULD BE STRUCTURED IN THE SAME WAY. Other instructions are WRITING THE ESSAY OR ASSIGNMENT Once the topic has been researched and notes made, it is then time to write the essay. It is personal choice how this is done. Some prefer to sit and write the whole assignment in one long session. Others work on writing one section at a time. The approach used does not matter, but if writing a section at a time be aware of maintaining consistency in the writing style throughout the piece or it will be disjointed. It may be useful to begin the process by mind mapping (refer to: www.adelaide.edu.au/writingcentre/learning_guides/), writing down as many ideas relating to the topic. These ideas can then be arranged into sections and linked together in a logical sequence. Identifying the main points allows paragraphs to be constructed. Normally one idea or point is discussed in each paragraph. One format that allows essays to flow is to introduce the idea of the next paragraph in the last sentence of the present paragraph linking ideas through the paper. Essays are usually written in the past tense; do not change tenses. It may help to read the assignment out loud or have someone else read it. This will help detect mistakes in grammar and syntax. Accurate spelling is essential, it is useful to perform a spell check if using a computer or to get someone else to read your assignment and check for errors. AUSTRALIAN SPELLING IS EXPECTED. WHEN USING MICROSOFT WORD SELECT ENGLISH (U.K.) AS THIS IS CLOSER TO AUSTRALIAN THAN ENGLISH (U.S.) AND WILL PROVIDE A MORE COMPREHENSIVE SPELL CHECK THAN ENGLISH (AUSTRALIAN). Although there can be creativity in the writing of an essay or assignment, it is useful to include the following: Introduction An introduction should clearly state the question, problem or issue to be considered, the limits or boundaries of the work and define important terms or concepts used. An introduction to the area or field of inquiry is required in order to situate the topic and provide a brief background. The literature may be used to support this discussion. Assume that the reader is a professional person unfamiliar with your particular field. After introducing the topic and developing the background material, describe what will be proposed in the essay. Body The main part of the essay or assignment should present the argument in a logical sequence, supporting each with evidence. Headings are useful in emphasising the structure of the essay and in breaking up the text. Most assignments will require students to critically analyse information. Critical thinking has been defined as ‘…reasonable reflective thinking that is focused on deciding what to believe or do’ (Ennis cited in Bensley 1998, p. 5). Critical thinking skills can assist in making sound judgments in a variety of situations. In this technological era everyone is constantly bombarded with information and ‘evidence’ through the media, internet and socially. It is important to critically analyse this evidence and do not just accept it on face value. Critical thinking involves analysing an argument and deciding whether in agreement with the author’s conclusion or not. Conclusion A conclusion should succinctly sum up the position. It should not merely consist of a summary of the paper; rather, it should state conclusions that have drawn based on the arguments assembled in the main body of the paper. New information should not be included in this section. Reference list A reference list contains the details of all works cited in the text. The list enables readers to locate the works for further information. Each record must be accurate and consistent. Develop the reference list as the essay is written. Appendix An appendix may be incorporated into the essay to present tables, diagrams or for lengthy extracts such as drug actions and side effects. Ensure these are appropriately referred to within the body of the paper and then labelled clearly and consecutively. More information on Essay Writing is available at www.adelaide.edu.au/writingcentre/learning_guides/ GENERAL LAYOUT FOR ASSIGNMENTS FORMAT Assignments are to comply with the following format: • Title page • Introduction • Body of the text • Conclusion • References • Appendices FORMATTING REQUIREMENTS All assignments should adhere to the following guidelines: • Use headings to help define the structure of the work to make it easier to read and comprehend. • There is to be a margin of at least 2.5cm on the left hand side. Use the font size 12, double or 1.5 spacing and justify both sides. Double space between paragraphs rather than indent is recommended. All pages must be numbered. • Common, compatible and web safe serif fonts to be used are as follows: Windows Mac Palatino Linotype, Arial Palatino Times New Roman Times Georgia Georgia Choose one of these fonts only for writing assignments.
